Madrid’s national court has ordered Coca-Cola to rehire 821 workers it had laid off and to pay them their outstanding salaries. According to the court the US drinks giant had undermined workers right to strike and not adequately informed or negotiated with staff. A spokesperson of the food workers trade union of CC.OO stated that the company had violated fundamental workers’ rights. The next step should be what the trade unions have been offering: ‘to sit down and negotiate in good faith to find an alternative to keep jobs and achieve a sustainable future for both the company and the workers’.
